Our colleague and Buildings and Grounds Chair Eric Harrold recommends that our main deck and our Administration Building ramp be repaired/replaced yet this fiscal year.  Eric requests authorization to proceed with these two projects, including identification of funding for materials.  Fiscal note:  Eric estimates that $5,000.00 is needed to replace the main deck, and that $2,000.00 is needed for the Administration Building ramp repairs/replacement.
